Once you have selected to call and have dialled the number or selected the contact, you will then have to wait to until you are in the call to record.
Step 2: Check the Legalities of Recording Calls
Before you record and subsequently transcribe calls in Vxt, you will need to check your local laws. In many countries and states, it is illegal to record a phone call without the express or implied consent of all parties involved. There are some exceptions such as if the private conversation is recorded in the public interest or is recorded to protect the lawful interests of one party. In most circumstances though it is best to err on the side of caution and make sure you have permission to record before doing so.
Step 3: Press the Record Button
Once you are in a call, and have the permission of the caller (in most cases where necessary) you can select the record button to begin recording audio from the call. Once you click record, the button will change and the audio from your microphone and the receiver's microphone will be recorded.
You can pause your recording at any time during the call, however the recording will also automatically stop once the call is ended. As shown below, the record button turns to a square image to signify that the audio is being recorded and will return to a circle once stopped.
Step 4: Access your Recordings
Once you have finished the call, you will be able to access past recordings in your Vxt Call Inbox. Access to this inbox is shown in the screenshot below.
The inbox is set-up in a similar format to your Vxt Voicemail messages. Simply click on the recorded call you wish to transcribe. For Vxt's transcription function to work, the call has to be recorded. If there is no play button next to the call then it is likely the record button was not selected. If the call was recorded successfully, then there should be a play button, as well as a small music note with corresponding lines. This button is the transcription function on Vxt Call. From there all you need to do is select the transcribe button to start the transcription process.
